    Date: October 11, 2018
    Presenter(s): Deborah Hicks

    Location: Krakow, Poland
    Comment: This study explores the relationship public libraries have with their communities via Twitter. Traditional understandings of library-community relationships rely on measures such as membership registration and library use statistics; however, social media applications like Twitter provide libraries with a new place to engage directly with clients and communities. Our findings provide insights into what types of library tweets solicit user engagement. These findings can be used by libraries to more fully engage with their users. In addition, they suggest interesting research directions for exploring library social networks.

  • Accompaniment Pedagogy: Improving Online Small Group Collaboration
    Date: November 07, 2018
    Presenter(s): Anthony Bernier

    Location: Online
    Comment: How can instructors improve student experience and performance in small online collaborative groups? On the one hand, instructors (and employers) acknowledge the value of small group collaboration skills; students, on the other hand, continually prefer to work independently. Neither group, however, demonstrates the capacity to improve or reconcile better solutions. Recent research trumpets the promise of online tools yet small group collaborations continue to produce outcomes with less-than-satisfying skill acquisition. Literature inquires about small group effectiveness within the context of specific classrooms, narrow content, or using specific digital resources. Most research concentrates on undergraduate experience and relies on student self-reports. Identifying generalizable data-driven instructional interventions and practices, however, remains oddly untreated. This workshop employs instructional treatments on working in small online groups prior to engaging project content. Online instructors, in many fields, require more systematic pedagogical approaches to improve student experience and increase student capacity for producing higher quality learning outcomes than from individual work. Additional concerns include defining and assessing small group “success” and, more importantly, identifying generalizable instructional techniques.
